"Kate’s there a lot for me," he told Forbes. "And we’re just normal people. You know, normal relationship — believe it or not."
So, in a lot of ways, theirs is a normal romance. They enjoy date nights (steak dinners!), have each other's backs both personally and professionally, and generally, seem to have a good time with each other. (Have you seen the DubSmash videos they've done together? They're very cute!)
But, of course, the facts remain that Upton, 23, is one of the world's most sought-after supermodels, reportedly earning $7 million last year and Verlander, 32, is guaranteed at least $225.5 million through 2019, according to the magazine. "Normal" can be a relative term.
Here's what we mean.
3. They go home for the holidays: In a private jet, with their dogs. "With Harley headed back to VA for turkey day. My man Riley is waiting for us at the house. #bestfriends," Verlander wrote. (Verlander grew up in Virginia, while Upton is a Michigan native.) It seems Upton went with him, as she also posted a photo of their dogs during the holiday, captioning it, "Hope everyone is as relaxed as these 2 this year for thanksgiving! #happythanksgiving."
The rest of the holiday seemed to be pretty traditional, however, with Verlander sharing a photo of his cooked turkey and, shortly thereafter, a picture of his father who split his pants at dinner.
5. They cook for each other: Verlander apparently tried to make his girlfriend pizza earlier this year, but failed miserably. However, he made up for it in a big way, whipping up a trio of delicacies. "Bon appetit @kateupton," he next to a photo of the food. "#rosemarychicken #tomatobasilshrimp #filetmediumrare #chefverlander" (There's a strong possibility he catered that in, right?)
